MY VERY FIRST QUILT SHOW

 Where can I begin?  One of the early things that I saw was a real surprise:  my daughter's Garden Party fabric as the focus fabric for a contest.  How great is that?


There were several quilts using the fabrid, but this was one of my favorites, maybe because I can picture her as that little girl some 30 years ago.

I got to meet up with a couple of my on-line quilting friends.  Just saw one of them momentarily and was never able to catch up with her again, but I was able to sit a while with another (first time we've actually met)  and have coffee as she and her granddaughters had their lunch.


I took a couple other photos, one of a quilt that I may want to try one day.

And another for all of you yo yo lovers out there.  Yep, that is all  yo yos!



Oh, and I did, of course, help to stimulate the economy a bit.  More about that at a later date, perhaps.
